The Cowboys finished the first two training camp practices with sprints.
It’s a serious effort at conditioning. When coach Jason Garrett has been unsatisfied with the effort, he calls the group back to re-run a sprint.
Tight end Jason Witten said it’s prep work for fourth quarters.
“We didn’t finish enough games where we had a chance to win,” he said. “We let them slip. This is just one area. These are long practices, a lot of running, but you have to be able to gut it out. That is what the fourth quarter is going to be like. A lot of that is physical, but it’s also mental.
“It’s a great way for us to work together and have a shared commitment.”
